California porn productions escape condom mandate
August 16, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — A state legislative committee has sidetracked a bill that would have required actors to use condoms during adult film productions in California.

The Senate Appropriations Committee held AB1576 earlier this week, meaning it is dead for the year.

The bill by Democratic Assemblyman Isadore Hall of Los Angeles would have required condom use in porn films produced anywhere in the state. It followed a condom requirement enacted by Los Angeles County voters in 2012.

Hall said the legislation was an effort to protect the health of actors and reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

In a statement, he said it was unfortunate that lawmakers were considering expanding a tax credit for Hollywood productions but would not protect the health of porn workers.

Pornography production represents a $6 billion-a-year industry.
